Diamonds are the hardest natural minerals on Earth, remarkably durable, resist
scratching (except by other diamonds) and maintain their brilliance over time.
But diamonds aren't indestructible, they can be chipped by a sharp blow,
become loose or lost in a weakened setting, or be damaged by contact with
other diamonds. Diamonds require special care to ensure to demonstrate their
best form and brilliance.
Wear with care

-Use a tape measure. Wrap the tape measure around your finger, note the measurement (in millimeters) and consult the Ancardi Ring Size Chart to determine your ring size.
-Download and print the Ancardi Ring Size Chart. (Note: Please ensure that "Page scaling" option is set to "None" in the dialog box of your printer options. The Ancardi Finger Chart must be printed on full-size standard letter paper.
Avoid touching the diamonds with your fingers

-A diamond’s sparkle can be lost as this can cause dirt or grease to collect on the diamond.
-So clean your diamond regularly by soaking the diamond in an ammonia-based household cleaner (such as window cleaner) and use a soft, clean toothbrush to remove any dirt.
Avoid cleaning your JEWELLERY in or near the sink

-If a sink is the only option for cleaning your jewellery, be sure to cover the sink drain to prevent your jewellery from going down the drain.
-We also advise to use a rubber sink mat to prevent jewellery from breaking or chipping if dropped.
Avoid harmful solutions

-Chlorine (as in household bleach) or abrasives (such as household cleansers or toothpaste) should never be used when cleaning diamonds, especially those set in jewellery.
-These types of products can erode some of the metals often used in diamond settings, and they may loosen prongs or even dissolve the metal completely.
If there are other gems set together with diamonds, please be aware

-Gems are not as hard as diamonds, and some can easily be scratched with a toothbrush.
-Be sure to check the best method for cleaning your particular gems.
-Fragile settings and older estate jewellery may not respond well to the scrubbing of a toothbrush, so use a soft touch.
If you haven’t had your ring setting inspected, PLEASE be aware

-Diamonds settings aren’t secure and may work loose from their settings.
Have your diamond cleaned at Ancardi

-While a home method is perfectly acceptable, it will be good to have your diamond cleaned periodically by a professionally trained jeweller at Ancardi.
-We can use one of two more thorough options for cleaning your diamond:

  • Ultrasonic cleaner - High-frequency sound waves through a liquid solution to remove the dirt and build-up
  • Steam cleaner - High-pressure steam to remove dirt and build-up.

-Treatment is any human controlled process used to improve diamond's appearance, which generally aim to improve apparent clarity or enhance or remove colour.
-The equipment at a retail store may not identify diamond treatment(s).
-Laboratory gemmologists with the proper equipment can detect such treatments, hence a lab report is helpful to ensure any treatment history.
-If the diamond is being treated, Ancardi will not advise for any cleaning service. Please refer to Terms and Conditions for details [Ancardi will not be liable for any damage caused to the jewellery, if we are uninformed about gem treatment(s).]
